Bruichladdich Cask Values & Valuations

Bruichladdich has a following quite unlike any distillery in Scotland. Their range of single malts, including Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore, have fanatical fans and the distillery continues to please with numerous special releases each year.

Many Bruichladdich casks were made available to the public once it re-opened and these casks are now worth considerably more than when they were first released. High ABV and RLA figures are essential to achieving a very high price, but even those casks with an ABV figure in the mid 40’s can still sell well.

Don’t be deterred if you have had a low offer from the distillery; as they have so much of their own stock their ‘buy back’ prices are often very low. We can get you a much better price for your cask as we have a very wide network of buyers all over the world ready to put forward a no-obligation offer.

The most desirable Bruichladdich casks are fresh fill sherry oak casks, however, refill sherry casks are also in demand. Bourbon cask (not as common at Bruichladdich) do not command the same premium as sherry casks. Octomore casks are very sought after.

Macallan

“From my initial contact with Mark the whole experience of selling my cask of 1989 Macallan Whisky has been a breeze. Mark was very helpful, exceedingly dedicated and totally professional at all times.

It was an excellent service provided at a very reasonable cost. Mark obtained a fantastic six-figure sum for my cask which I am completely over the moon with.

I would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.”

Tim Johnson 

“Mark sold a cask of whisky which I had inherited and did not know what to do with. The offer I got through Mark was much higher than the distillery had offered me and the whole process was simple and best of all, profitable!

He explained all of the steps I needed to take in a straightforward manner and no question was too small for him to answer. Well recommended.”

“Mark sold a barrel of Springbank for me – he is very attentive, always responds quickly, and kept me informed throughout the process, and achieved a very pleasing sale price. S

Selling a barrel is quite slow and administratively fiddly, so having someone like Mark who knows the process is useful, not just to find a willing buyer but to nurse the transaction along as well..”

Neil Holden

“I approached Mark with some trepidation about the sale of a cask of whisky having no idea how to sell it. Mark is eminently knowledgeable about the resale process and before long had secured a very good offer.

I was very impressed with the way Mark communicated during the process, he kept me up to date with regular calls and dealt with all the legal aspects of the sale.

Well worth a five star rating and I would not hesitate to use Mark’s services again.”

The History of the Bruichladdich Distillery

The Bruichladdich Distillery is located on Scotland’s isle of Islay and produces primarily single malt Scotch whiskies that are renowned for their quality. In the ownership of Remy Cointreau, this distillery is one of only 8 functioning distilleries still to be found on the island. 

Bruichladdich was constructed by William, John and Robert Harvey in 1881 in the west of the island. This dynastic family already owned two whisky distilleries in Glasgow which had been in their ownership since 1770, and this third distillery was built using the brothers’ inheritance money. At the time of the distillery’s construction, it featured a cutting-edge design, being constructed using stone from the shore and using and efficient layout with a spaciously large courtyard at its centre.

Its uniquely narrow necked and tall stills were specially chosen in order to produce a spirit that was original and extremely pure – the complete opposite of the whisky style which was being produced at the older farm-style distilleries on the island. William Harvey ran the distillery until 1934, and over the following four decades, the distillery changed hands numerous times.

After avoiding closure narrowly, it was finally closed down in 1994. Yet in 2000, the distillery was bought and, following an extensive dismantling and reassembling project, it reopened again with much of the original Victorian-era equipment and décor still in place. Even today, there are no computers in use during the production process and the gravity fed system uses the old Victorian methods.

All of the whiskies produced by the distillery are single malts. The Bruichladdichbottlings being unpeated, the Port Charlotte bottlings being very peated, and Octomore bottlings being extremely heavily peated – so heavily peated in fact that it has earned the title of most heavily peated single malt whisky anywhere in the world.

Full production was achieved by the distillery in 2013, and it uses exclusively Scottish barley, much of which is grown on the island itselfIn fact, the origins of the barley which is used by this distillery is extremely important to the philosophy of the brand, and individual farmers, fields and farms are usually identified on the whisky’s packaging, strengthening its links with the Islay community.

Today, the Bruichladdich distillery has created an impressive administrative and management system on the island, including Islay’s only commercial scale bottling hall. It is also the island’s largest private employer, providing about 60 jobs for local people.
